Landon Donovan is a father! The United States and LA Galaxy legend's wife gave birth to a boy on Wednesday.
The greatest joy and most love I've ever experienced. Welcome to the world Talon Bartell Donovan ❤️ pic.twitter.com/jbzYwsuG0z— Landon Donovan (@landondonovan) January 27, 2016
Donovan married Hannah Bartell in May 2015, six months after retiring from soccer. He announced his wife's pregnancy in September
Donovan hasn't spent a ton of time around the game since retiring in December 2014. He's working on some soccer camps, and managed at the MLS All-Star Homegrown Game, but he's put most of his time into traveling and trying new things. He lamented how rigid his schedule was as a player and has used retirement to get away from the game. Now he'll spend that time with his son.
The birth of Donovan's son comes days after Sydney Leroux and Dom Dwyer announced that they were expecting a child. Let the dreams of 2038 World Cup glory begin (maybe for Canada?).
